I had MS for the last 7 month, in many articles I read that (Fever, Hot bath, Sun exposure and stress) can trigger or worsen attacks, but some doc said that vitamin D is good for MS peoples, is this true or not because I have a problem with sun exposure.
Heat can trigger worsened symptoms, so if this is the case for you, you want to avoid heat.
Vitamin D is good for us and we can take D3 supplements to raise our low levels. Sun exposure also raises our D and it only requires 15 minutes a day of sun exposure to get a benefit. You don't have to fry in the sun for hours.
I have found since being on Gilenya for the past year that the sun wasn't my problem it was the interferons/ steroids that made the heat worse now find comfort in hot shower - not luke warm and heat packs haven't attempted a hot tub again though
